February 4, 2021 – Day 35

Thought and Memory

Odin had two ravens, Huginn (thought) and Muninn (memory). Every day they would fly out over the world and report what they saw to Odin and thus he was kept informed.

In one of the poems of the Edda, it’s said that -‘For Hugin I fear lest he come not home, But for Munin, my care is more.’

I think it’s interesting that there is concern for thought not returning, but losing memory is worse… I’m hard-pressed to say which is worse.

Today’s Prompt: Two Aspects of being – which is more important?
